      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Boat anchor

I recently started fishing more with my young kids (6 and 3). I am finding that anchor fishing with them may be a good option, as it is difficult to manage them and the trolling motor. Anyone have ideas on what type of anchor to get? I have a 17.5' crestliner. Most of the lakes I fish have a muddy/soft bottom. Current is variable on the lakes/rivers I fish. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks.

I use a 20lb and a 25lb river style anchor and haven't had any problems holding on the river or open water. I have 75 to 100 feet of good quality anchor rope on these anchors, good rope is a must. also I have the rope wraped around a wire feed welding spool(all plastic) wraps up nice and stows away neatly .

25# Richter and at least 100' of rope and you wont go anywhere in even the hardest conditions.

Good rope and have at least 3ft. of galvanized chain attached to the anchor. This will help keep the anchor on its side to hold. I went from a 10# mushroom shaped to a aluminum anchor (I don't remember the name of style) last year and it holds in any condition. The place that I purchased it from said that it is very important to have the chain.
